Mexican Food in Cork City Centre


May 5, 2014 by Evin

When I first moved here from California, it was a challenge to find a decent burrito. Thankfully, the past six years have been blessed with my husband’s Mexican cooking. We bring canned tomatillos back in our luggage! But recently Cork has had a resurgence of Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine. Here are a few places to get you in the mood for a fiesta (or siesta).

Of course, there are grocery options too! Black beans are available at Quay Co-op as well as the first stall on the left when entering the English Market on the fountain side. Dried black beans are available in the gluten-free speciality food aisle at Tesco on Paul Street. And at festivals, keep an eye out for Brendan’s Veggie Burritos and Burgers.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I’ll leave you with a photo of American-style crispy corn tacos and nachos.

  1. One the many things I love about Mexico. It’s food! The color, the taste and exotic ingredients made me gain a lot of weight! Another article that sums it up nicely is

    Dearly wish to go back to Playa del Carmen just to dig my teeth again even at the risk of a heart attack!

Enough about me. What are you thinking?
